Why do brands need this service?

Consumer shopping habits have been forever changed by an increasingly complex and fragmented Marketplace. Today, brands struggle to fulfill consumer’s growing expectations of personalized product offerings, faster delivery while at a lower total cost. Davinci’s Micro-Fulfillment solution offers a transformational approach for brands to offer retailers and consumer’s the right products, in the right place, and at the right cost. The solution is accomplished through a proprietary 3-step approach encompassing: Front-End-Merchandise Management, Inventory Optimization, and Davinci’s MFC physical location network.

What is my competitive advantage?

Davinci Micro Fulfillment will provide an end-to-end solution for a brand to ensure that appropriate products will be offered for each dot-com channel, merchandised effectively (content, pricing, promotion), placed into Davinci micro-fulfillment centers at ideal U.S. locations, in optimized quantities and fulfilled to consumers through processes that minimize lead-time and cost. Davinci’s MFC (Micro Fulfillment Center) locations are strategically located and sized to minimize lead-time (1-2 days shipping time to consumers) and cost across the United States. Each MFC is 25,000 square feet or less, operated to maximize flexibility, unburdened by costly and oftentimes ineffective technology, and solely focused on non-perishable items. MFC locations are not traditional 3PL warehouses, but part of an integrated D2C solution to ensure that items managed on behalf of brands maximize their sell-through while minimizing waste and cost.

What about Amazon?

Amazon.com benefits greatly from this model as their business typically grows when managed appropriately with other retail channels and knowing how to promote and execute online. Brands will be more profitable allowing more dollars to promote products and create incremental sales, using data, analytics, and Amazon’s tools, at Amazon.com, such as their advertising platform to spend through. This enables and promotes their own flywheels. Amazon.com also saves on freight and handling while meeting consumer demands.
